The Commonwealth of Virginia recently passed a sales tax exemption to Virginia residents for "bullion purchases" in aggregate totaling over $1,000, effective July 1, 2015. This defines such purchases as: refined to least 90% gold, silver, or platinum; varying with the price of the underlying metal and not on rarity, condition, age, or other external factor; and selling for a price that does not exceed 120% of the underlying value of the precious metal. Since all of our gold, silver, and platinum coins have absolute and conditional rarity and numismatic premiums exceeding 120% of their precious metal content, the exemption does not apply to our inventory. We look forward to the day when the Commonwealth passes a blanket sales-tax exemption for all rare coins and paper currency, which would greatly benefit both Virginia businesses and the Commonwealth of Virginia as well.
